Better for women

iDateAsia is a new romance website from Qpid, the same company that brought us Chnlove. The features and services are identical to Chnlove, the difference here is that females listed on the site are from either Thailand, Vietnam or Taiwan.

Getting In

Both men and women can register on the site and create a photo profile at no cost - however it is clear the system is designed very much for men. Most of the links and galleries refer to "available ladies" and after a few minutes my account was deactivated. When I tried to log in again I received a message saying "The site provides direct services to male members only".

A lot of the female profiles I saw were posted by marriage agencies in their home countries.

It's possible that these women themselves never actually visit the site but just correspond through an agency.

What's Available

Men will have no such problems signing-up. Once inside, the site operates a credit system whereby men must purchase credits for privileges such as:

  • Emailing women or obtaining contact details
  • Live chat through the site's messenger
  • Talking directly to women via telephone (with the assistance of a translator)
  • Arranging face-to-face meetings

iDateAsia uses an identical format to Chnlove, their successful Chinese site. Cupid Date allows you to schedule face-to-face meetings with female members. Its all very automated and feels more like a ticketing system, however it does work. You pick the lady you would like to meet and arrange a time - the rest is handled for you.

Prices can be quite steep, especially for face-to-face meeting arrangements. The cost does include a brief translation service of 90-minutes - at least it's enough to get acquainted with the other person.

Love Call

The other option is "Love Call". This allows you to schedule telephone dates with women of your choice and lets you keep track of who you've met and when. The price for "Love Calls" also includes translation.

In Summary

iDateAsia is for Western men wishing to meet women of Thai, Vietnamese or Taiwanese origin. The credit system can be quite costly, with even higher costs if you wish to meet someone in person.

    Avoid

    site exists purely to fleece men out of as much money as possible. fake contacts lure you into buying the credits and keep draining money from you.
